Dental Implants

Dental Implants are often considered the “gold standard” for replacing missing teeth due to their ability to replicate the entire tooth structure. Implants can replace single teeth or be used to anchor full or partial dentures. Aesthetically, dental implants blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and restore your beautiful smile. A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that takes the place of a natural tooth root and is equally as strong. The titanium tooth root is surgically implanted in your jawbone; your body’s bone tissue then naturally fuses with the titanium and creates a reliable prosthetic tooth root. The implant posts also help stimulate the jaw tissues, preventing bone loss. To complete the restoration, the implant is topped with a crown or denture prosthesis, effectively enhancing the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures, also known as implant dentures or All-on-4®, are an innovative approach to partial and full arch replacement where a custom denture prosthetic is secured to dental implants. Implant-supported dentures provide a more stable and comfortable solution for individuals with multiple missing teeth or entire arches of missing teeth. Dental implants act as anchors in the jawbone, ensuring the dentures stay firmly in place during speaking and eating. Since dental implants stimulate the jawbone, implant dentures can also prevent bone deterioration after tooth loss. Many patients who have made the switch from dentures to implant dentures report enjoying the enhanced comfort and convenience they provide.

Bone Grafting

Bone is the foundation of your natural teeth, and adequate jawbone density is required to properly support dental implants. For patients whose bone has deteriorated—whether because of periodontal disease, trauma, or other factors—bone grafting can help restore lost tissue density. The bone graft is placed in the area of the missing tooth, preparing a more adequate foundation for the implant post. This can significantly increase the likelihood of patients having a successful implant surgery that provides long-lasting results. Additionally, preserving or building new bone can aid in the aesthetic outcome in regards to where the gum tissue is located.

Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures can take the place of missing natural teeth. Dentures allow patients to chew and speak more easily while improving their appearance and boosting self-confidence. Full dentures are used when all of a patient’s teeth need to be replaced. Partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing. In either case, dentures can help you look and feel your best.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a prosthetic tooth “cap” that is used to restore teeth where the structure is too weakened or damaged to accept dental fillings. Dental technology has come a long way to improve the look of crowns. Modern dental crowns are exceptionally well-fitted, long-lasting, and natural looking. The use of high-quality dental porcelain ensures that crowns mimic the shade, texture, and opacity of the surrounding teeth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a restorative solution used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by either dental crowns on adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges can help restore oral function, improve aesthetics, and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. They are a common and effective solution for those who are not candidates for dental implants or prefer a non-surgical approach to tooth replacement. 

Composite Bonding

A less expensive and less invasive remedy than crowns or porcelain veneers, composite bonding is an effective technique used to improve the strength and appearance of your teeth. Bonding is ideal for repairing and masking teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or injured. It can also reduce gaps between the teeth. During the procedure, a delicate layer of composite resin is painted onto the damaged teeth, adding strength while ensuring they remain virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.

Composite bonding is a quick process, typically taking less than an hour. Compared to veneers or crowns, it is a popular choice because it does not require alterations to the tooth’s structure. Composite bonding is also relatively inexpensive. Furthermore, the composite resins are available in many different shades. The shade can be chosen to match the natural color of the original tooth, allowing it to blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
